Turgor-pressure driven opening of guard cells in stomata

The turgor pressure in the guard cells controls the opening and closing movement of the stomata. Stomata play an important role in plants by regulating the exchange of gas (oxygene, carbon dioxide, water molecules) involved in photosynthesis and respiration. Teaching: J. Derksen (Plant cell Biology); Illustration: J. Hiddink (GVF-FWNI-KUN)
